Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Compassionate, articulate, hilarious. These are some adjectives
used to describe me when overhearing people's conversations. At
least I'm pretty sure they are talking about me. I mean, why
wouldn't they be? Think Gatsby without the confidence issues.
Captain Ahab, but with better harpooning skills. James Bond with a
better taste in whiskey. Romeo without the crazy ass family and
suicidal tendencies. George Clooney but without the.....wait, he's
I think my most important character trait, however, is my humility
and down-to-earthedness. Yep, that's a word now. I'm like
Merriam-Webster but with a better vocabulary.
Ok. That's enough of that. Hi! I'm Chris. Wait, you know that
already? Oh right, because my terrible profile name gives it away.
I could pay to change it, but really OK Cupid? Really?
So how do I describe myself in a nutshell? It puts me in a tight
spot for sure. Haha! Bad joke 1 of 3 in this profile.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I teach high school social studies special education. Try saying
that 5 times fast. Seriously though, I love this job.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm sort of like a general studies major - I have a lot of
interests and hobbies, but I'm not really all that good at any of
them. I guess I'm pretty good at singing 80's karaoke (if you can
be good at something like that). Also, balancing a dime on its

in all seriousness though, I feel like my lack of face tattoos is
almost always mentioned.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

A wiser man than myself once said, "The one good thing about music
- when it hits you, you feel no pain." Couldn't agree more. I
appreciate all types/styles of music. I am always looking for a new
genre/artist/album/song to fall in love with. I'm totally digging
Fitz and The Tantrums right now and will never give up my love for
Led Zeppelin regardless of how creepy Robert Plant looks. The Hold
Steady, J Roddy Walston, ZZ Ward, and Frank Turner are rocking my
socks off right now as well.
I just got cable after living in the dark for the last four years,
so I'm catching up. I can't make an informed decision on favorite
shows until I've watched the classics that I've missed. I feel like
anything HBO and AMC has to offer is going to make the list.
I'm a history teacher...you can bet that I'm going to be nosediving
into a nonfiction book. The two I'm currently working on (besides
textbooks) include an account of imperialism in the Congo and a
biography of Winston Churchill. You know, just some light reading
before bedtime. I do want to re-read the whole Goosebumps series at
some point though. That stuff was great.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
are family, friends, live music, online bill pay, and opposable
thumbs (both of them).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.

adolescents - and yes, this does frighten me at times.
Also, time travel. I'm not kidding. It fascinates me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Open to anything. Except getting a face tattoo. I like that unique
aspect about my physical appearance. Oh and that's the night I
provide my orchid with three ice cubes so it can live. Yep, I have
an orchid. Working up to the day when I can raise a philodendron.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I may or may not love the song "Total Eclipse of the Heart."
